Fifth Annual Running of the Bulls Road Race
The Tanner Ta Ta Foundation, a local breast cancer organization that supports women and families after a diagnosis, will be hosting its fifth annual Running of the Bull's Race & Walk Fundraiser. The race will take place this Sunday, November 27 at 11 am, beginning at Scoreboard Sports Bar & Grill, 15 Middlesex Canal Park in Woburn.
There will be a health walk starting at 11 am, as well as the 3-mile race starting at 11:30am. Tickets are $10 for the kids race (aged 13-18) and $20 for the adult race (pre-registration). Tickets on race day are $25 per adult. All proceeds will benefit the Tanner Ta Ta Foundation.
The Tanner Ta Ta Foundation officially began in 2010, under the direction of former Woburn High School classmates Erin Ficociello and Michelle Amari. They had started fundraising a couple of years earlier in 2007, when they hosted the Pink Party and raised over $15,000 which was donated to the Boston Avon Walk. The idea for the Pink Party fundraiser had started in honor of their Woburn High School Class of 1987 classmates who had been diagnosed with breast cancer before the age of 40. Following Erin's own diagnosis in 2008, they decided to formalize their fundraising into what is now the Tanner Ta Ta Foundation.
The Foundation works to provide local support and services to both survivors and women in treatment for breast cancer. This road race is a great way to support their cause! Click here to get tickets for the Running of the Bulls race.
